Energy therapy (Reiki, Pranic healing, Faith healing)

Pranic Healing
Pranic healing is the transfer of subtle energy from one person to another. Prana is a Sanskrit word literally meaning ‘life-force’ the invisible bio-energy or vital energy that keeps the body alive and maintains a state of good health. In pranic healing, cure is affected by simply removing diseased energies from the patient’s invisible energy body and transferring fresh vital energy (prana) to the affected areas with the use of hands.

It is a form of spiritual healing for the treatment of physical, emotional and mental diseases. The practitioners of Reiki believe that diseases are a matter of the life force being disrupted. A channel of energy (“Ki”) guided by a universal spirit or spiritual nature (“Rei”) flows through their palms to heal a person wherever it may need healing. Reiki heals by flowing through the affected parts of the energy field and charging them with positive energy and allowing the life force to flow in a healthy and natural way.

Healing Touch Therapy
Healing touch is a specific type of touch therapy that has been used to improve the quality of life of cancer patients. Healing touch has been proved to reduce stress and help with pain management. The relaxation and stress relief brought about by healing touch therapy may stimulate the body’s natural healing mechanisms. The therapy uses a gentle hand motion either on or above the skin to ‘smooth’ the body’s energy field. Often, the patients relax so completely that they fall asleep.
